Sky's on-demand customers are to gain access to the first two series of the award-winning Game of Thrones.

From April 1st 2013, pay-TV subscribers will be able to watch the first 20 episodes of the HBO fantasy drama at their convenience.

Sky is making Game of Thrones available on-demand on the same day the third series gets underway in the UK.

This will be just 24 hours after the US network premiere - helping to reduce the chance of spoilers ahead of the new series.

The show is based on George RR Martin's best-selling book series A Song of Ice and Fire, adapted for TV by David Benioff and DB Weiss.

Set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade-long summer, it focuses on the members of several noble houses, engaged in a civil war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms.

Elaine Pyke, Director of Sky Atlantic, noted that Game of Thrones has "a huge fanbase" in the UK.

"We are thrilled that from April 1st we will be able to give our customers access to seasons one and two on-demand," she stated.
